The Economics of Alfred Marshall by Herbert J. Davenport

Status: One Round of QC (10.26.2013)


Fix Notes:

Page 2 of the PDF ("Also Published in"): "By Herert J. Davenport" should be "Herbert"

Page 12: bottom par.: admissible

What discomfort or grief is in this? Displaced money gains are plainly not admissable in this [...]

Page 142: par. 1: permissible

No shading-off, by degrees of time, from price-determined to price-determining is permissable to distinguish cause-relations from result-relations—on the hither side of a point of time, a cause; on the farther side, a result.

Page 164: par. 1: connotative

[...] his occasional notion of real value as an exchange relation satisfactory to the trader (p. 137); and of real value as connotive of real costs, (p. 632), or of merit (p. 205) [...]

Page 213: par. 1 (punctuation right before par. 2): Accidental comma instead of period

Items of evidence may support the substantive fact; they cannot replace it,

Page 217: bottom par.: efficiencies

There are no utilities or efficencies at large. All producing and consuming is individual. All price offers

Page 223: footnote: enterpriser

Any interpriser can have all of any one for which he wants to pay. But what of the past or the future, or the whence, or the whither?

Page 325: second to last par.: ineffective

Notice the normals; and also that only two pages back training outlays were reported to be almost entirely absent or inffective with business ability.

Page 296: par. 2 (near very bottom of page): representative

The different conditions, producers inclusive, in the different fields of production get summed up in the situation of the respective respresentative producers.

Page 345: Footnote "Skilled labor": It is missing the "p." for page number in parenthesis.
Page 345: Footnote "Wages": It is missing a parenthesis right before the page number.

Page 353: par. 3: missing left double quotation mark

In a stationary state alone . . . the term normal always means the same thing: there, but only there, “average price” and normal price” are convertible terms. (pp. 371-72)

Page 364: par. 1 (end of first blockquote): Ending right double quotation is not needed, does not match the rest of the usage throughout the book.

[...] the price the expectation of which will just suffice to maintain the existing aggregate amount of production. . . .” (pp. 342–43)

Page 368: very last word on page: millennium

But, differing only in degree, any time or period, month, year or milleni-um, becomes by these mathematical procedures a normal period.


Page 30: I split some of these paragraphs into blockquotes.
Page 105-106: Bottom par.-next page: I broke this large quotation into a blockquote.
Page 135: footnote: I split some of these so I could implement blockquotes.
Page 158: par. 0: I split into blockquote.
Page 268: footnote: I split some of these so I could implement blockquotes.
Index: "Neoclassical" should be "Neo-classical" (matches the rest of usage throughout the book).

I made all blockquote begin with no indentation.
"Böhm-Bawerk" occurted once, while "Boehm-Bawerk" occurred 5 times. I decided to change them all to "Böhm-Bawerk"


Page 200: par. 1: How should this wrongfully place sentence go?

[...] relations of cause and effect —turning on tests of right purposes in achieving beneficent outcomes—ethical distinctions made controlling for scientific classifica-land belong, not in the land-capital category, but go along instead with the quasi-rent classification of productive factors, we arrive tions, a line of distinction not rare among economists.

Page 245: par. 0: cultivator. I did a search on Google and found 15 results, could be a bad misspelling, or could be a gardening tool. (????)

Nor with the owning culvitator is the growing of oats a thing to be considered.
